  • Description

    CONGO-BRAZZAVILLE PRESIDENT ALPHONSE MASSAMBA-DEBAT HAS BEEN ON A TWO DAY VISIT TO SENEGAL. THE PRESIDENT FLEW INTO DAKAR AT THE END OF LAST MONTH. HE WAS MET BY PRESIDENT LEOPOLD SENGHOR OF SENEGAL, AND THEN SPENT TWO BUSY DAYS IN THE CAPITAL.

    ON WEDNESDAY THE VISITING PRESIDENT WENT TO THE DAKAR UNIVERSITY WHICH HAS WON A HIGH REPUTATION FOR ITS STANDARDS AND SUCCESS.

    THE RECTOR OF THE UNIVERSITY, M. TEYSSIER AND M. AMADOU MARTAR M'BOW, THE SENEGALESE MINISTER OF EDUCATION, SHOWED PRESIDENT MASSAMBA DEBAT ROUND THE UNIVERSITY BUILDINGS.

    AT A BANQUET THAT EVENING PRESIDENT SENGHOR SAID THAT SENEGAL AND CONGO-BRAZZAVILLE HAD BOTH CHOSEN THE PATH OF DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM AND NATIONAL CONSTRUCTION. THIS DEPENDED ON THE UNITY AND WISHES OF THE PEOPLE, HE SAID. PRESIDENT SENGHOR ADDED THAT PROGRESS IN THE CONGO HAD BEEN RATHER MORE IMPETUOUS THAN THAT BY SENEGAL, BUT THE BRAZZAVILLE GOVERNMENT HAD PROVED THAT IT WAS SEEKING IDEAL CONDITIONS BY STICKING TO REALISTIC OBJECTIVES.
